Vision insurance is available to all benefit-eligible employees. Coverage is not available to Other Personal Services (OPS) employees. Employees pay the full premium amount on a pre-tax basis. Employees have 60 days from their date of hire to enroll. Plan changes are only allowed during the annual open enrollment or as a result of an approved qualifying status change.
Vision insurance is an additional insurance to cover eye care related expenses not covered by basic health insurance. These expenses may include comprehensive eye health examinations, annual contact lens allowances, wholesale pricing on frames, and discounts on Lasik and PRK procedures. Employees may choose a full coverage plan (includes eye exams) or coverage for materials (glasses/contacts) only. Keep in mind that you may have some coverage of vision services available under your health plan.
